Justin Moore - If Heaven Wasn't So Far Away Lyrics

Every day I drive to work across Flint River bridge
A hundred yards from the spot where me and grandpa fished
There's a piece of his old fruit stand on the side of Sawmill Road
He'd be there peelin' peaches if it was twenty years ago
And what I wouldn't give
To ride around in that old truck with him

If heaven wasn't so far away
I'd pack up the kids and go for the day
Introduce them to their grandpa
Watch 'em laugh at the way he talks
I'd find my long lost cousin John
The one we left back in Vietnam
Show him a picture of his daughter now
She's a doctor and he'd be proud
Then tell him we'd be back in a couple of days
In the rear view mirror we'd all watch 'em wave
Yeah, and losing them wouldn't be so hard to take
If heaven wasn't so far away

I'd hug all three of those girls we lost from the class of '99
And I'd find my bird dog Bo and take him huntin' one more time
I'd ask Hank why he took those pills back in '53
And Janis to sing the second verse of "Me and Bobby McGee"
Sit on a cloud and visit for a while
It'd do me good just to see them smile

If heaven wasn't so far away
I'd pack up the kids and go for the day
Introduce them to their grandpa
Watch 'em laugh at the way he talks
I'd find my long lost cousin John
The one we left back in Vietnam
Show him a picture of his daughter now
She's a doctor and he'd be proud
Then tell him we'd be back in a couple of days
In the rear view mirror we'd all watch 'em wave
Yeah, and losing them wouldn't be so hard to take
If heaven wasn't so far
If heaven wasn't so far
If heaven wasn't so far away
So far away
So far away

    Seventeen now. Man, how the years fly. Use to come here when I was real young. Lost my dad at 10 lost my big brother at 14. Never stop believing and if you see this best believe the good lord is watching over you. Never give up your faith or trust in the man up stairs. Please for yourself. Here he's my personal inspirational story for anyone who may see this and deserves to see this listen up relax and enjoy your time reading because your about to read a real life experience from my life that was given to me by god and my dad and brother. The summer of 2019 is when god showed me he was there. So I'm at my lowest point in life done with everything giving up. Crying, depressed.. relying on god one last time. I sat on my roof tears rolling down my face asking for proof begging please. I said " Kenny , Poppa, God if your up there and your listening please I'm begging you please give me a sign give me the sign you love me your still there looking down on me protecting me watching over me loving me.. god please, please give me a sign. Please. A shooting star a blink of that street light over there looked to the sky and said in 3, 2 , 1... NOW!" A shooting start dropped right before my eyes. Never lose your faith never give up please it's not worth it boys and girls ladies and gentlemen. Live on find that love in your heart and carry on. You don't think I didn't want to give up after I lost the closest people in my life? I was devastated I wanted to be with them but guess what I carried on and when I was going to end it they showed me there's more I have to do here and they never left. So if you lost anyone best believe they love you and there watching over you. What if your sign is to see this? Huh you can't expect to get a sign like mine. It can be as simple as this I'm just asking everyone who may see this please live, love , and enjoys his world and this life he gave you. Come on.

    Kevin B.

  61. Shyanne Rose

    I don't live with either my mom or dad- I was taken away from my mom when I was 8 months old- I still see her but I don't see my dad much- I haven't seen him since he lied to me telling me "ill be back tomorrow" the day before fathers day- and I haven't seen him since- I say I would be fine without him but deep inside I know that I need him, it hurts (I live with my grandma and im now 12- soon to be 13) and I try to forget it- nobody cares to listen to my story- at school or anywhere else- but 1 person and he means everything to me but these days hes been ignoring me and pushing me away- I don't know what to do anymore- if you got this far, thank you for reading my story- God bless you and your family <3

    Years ago when I was a teenager I went out with this girl who I really liked and who really liked me. We had only went out a couple of times but I thought she was so beautiful and one of the sweetest girls I ever met! I broke it off after a couple of dates because she was16 and I was19 and I didn’t think it would work. I have always regretted it and never forgot about her! Well 3 months ago I heard she committed suicide. It broke my heart to hear this! I wish heaven wasn’t so far away so I could see her again and huge her and let her know I’m sorry for ever ending it with her!
